Glenvale SDA initiates Bike2Church Day

National Ride2Work Day is an Australia-wide initiative held annually to encourage people who have never ridden to work, or who do so infrequently, to commute on their bike.

It also encourages frequent riders to keep at it and encourage their workmates to get involved.

One local congregation is so supportive of the values behind Ride2Work that they’ve come up with a novel way of bringing attention to the event.

Last month, the Glenvale Seventh-day Adventist Church orchestrated their third annual Bike2Church Day, a few days in advance of Ride2Work Day (Wednesday, October 16) as a way of adding publicity and local enthusiasm to the national initiative.

“All Christians should genuinely care about personal health and protecting the environment,” said pastor Casey Wolverton. “So it makes sense for the Church to enthusiastically support initiatives like Ride2Work because of its positive impact on both of these important areas.”

Daniel Eddy and Bruce Bazley rode nearly-30km round trips, travelling an hour each way from their Highfields home to the Glenvale congregation on Greenwattle street.

“Driving a car to church every weekend is too easy,” said Ps. Casey. “Bike2Church Day helps us appreciate how good we really have it here in Australia.”
